Parking Lot Repair Later in August

Repair of the Library main parking lots is scheduled for Monday 8/22 – Thursday 9/22.


The main entrance and the alley between the parking lots will be closed during parts of the project. The door at 4th and Spruce will serve as the Library’s main entrance when necessary.


Please call the Library at 913-682-5666 or check our website and social media postings for the status of parking and entering the Library.


Temporary Change to Library Hours Extended Through Labor Day

The Library will be remain closed on Sundays through Labor Day. Currently, there are simply not enough employees to cover a 68-hour, seven day a week public service schedule.


This action was not taken lightly. Closing Sundays is the least disruptive approach, one that allows the greatest share of regular services to continue as normal. Every effort is being made to fill all the open positions and restore the regular Library schedule as soon as possible.
